Slight delayed reaction in muscular movement. What is the clinical name for this condition?

Hi, my oldest son(6) is slightly delayed in his muscular movement. I don t remember what the clinical name for it is but I thought my wife told me it was affasia. An example of his condition, if I were to throw a pitch to him, his brain would say, swing , but his arms wait a bit too long before he actually swings. Is affasia the name of this condition and can a young child grow out of it?

Thank you for your query.

Aphasia is loss of voice and not delayed muscular movement.

What you describe for your son is a coordination issue. With training the child should be able to overcome it.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
